Inter Milan coach Simone Inzaghi could deploy Davide Frattesi as a starter against Atalanta instead of Henrikh Mkhitaryan.
The Nerazzurri travel to Bergamo to take on Gian Piero Gasperini’s side at the Gewiss Stadium. The anticipated encounter kicks off on Saturday at 18:00 CET.
The league leaders will be looking to consolidate their spot on top of the Serie A table. However, Inzaghi might still install some changes to the starting formation that beat Roma last weekend.
According to La Gazzetta dello Sport via FcInterNews, Frattesi could start tomorrow’s match in the middle of the park, replacing Mkhitaryan.
The Armenian has been an automatic starter for the Beneamata since the start of the campaign. He has two goals and as many assists in 13 appearances across all competitions.
But with an important Champions League fixture against Red Bull Salzburg in midweek, the manager could decide to rest of the former Man United and Arsenal star.

Nevertheless, the source expects the main attacking partnership of Lautaro Martinez and Marcus Thuram to maintain their spots.
As for the other rotation options, the report believes Carlos Augusto might get the nod on the left flank. The Brazilian wingback would thus replace Federico Dimarco.
The pink newspaper also leaves the door open for one or two changes at the back. Matteo Darmian might end up replacing Benjamin Pavard. Moreover, Stefan de Vrij will be hoping to earn his spot at Federico Acerbi’s expense.
